Koch Lab:Publications/Drafts/Versatile Feedback
This is a draft of a paper that describes a useful software controller design for automated experimental setups. The particular application is dynamic single-molecule experiments performed with optical traps, but we believe the abstraction of hardware control into modular, functional feedback steps with user-programmable stop conditions offers a good example that can have application in other fields.
The draft was mostly written by Richard Yeh, with some help from Steve Koch. We are posting on OpenWetWare in draft form, because we probably will not try to publish in a peer reviewed journal soon, and the draft as is may have some positive impact.
